Spiritual House Built with Lively Stones
"But Christ as a son over his own house; whose HOUSE are we, IF we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end." Heb. 3:6 Wow!
IF....IF....IF we hold fast unto the end, we are his HOUSE...the building and temple of the Lord! This is truly the EVIDENCE that we are part of his HOUSE....IF we hold fast.
Another verse that goes along with these is I Pet. 2:5... "Ye also, as LIVELY stones, are built up a SPIRITUAL HOUSE, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ."
The word "LIVELY" really catches my attention! God wants LIVELY stones! He wants us to be zealous for Him! Yes! YES! :) LIVELY STONES!
